Nowhere you need to know
The fire has not been responding to slowing efforts. They are setting up a larger scale command center at the fairgrounds and brining in outside support.
Even though they are trying not to cause panic and telling people who aren’t in the immediate path to stay put, firefighters who we know are telling people to get out because it’s not slowing down and the wind always picks up at night in the valley

Doesn't sound good...
Are you able to try clearing brush from around your house? It may decrease the chances of it burning

We don’t have much brush immediately next to our house, but we are surrounded by trees and the trees area is protected wetland that we can’t clear (even though it’s our property)

The sky on our street, the view from the river and before and after from the highway

Even if you could clear the trees you don't have time to...
I wonder if you can set up some sort of non-flamable barrier around your home?
What about your dog? Its a big dog so do you plan to squeeze him in the car?

Oh jeez. I do hope you and everyone in the vicinity stay safe from the blazing fire. 🤞🙏
